The Jews of Budapest have endured periods of great suffering and enormous success throughout history, from the Weimar years to the strife of World War II. Learn many important aspects of Jewish history as you explore a ghetto in Pest.

Since the Middle Ages, Jews have formed a prominent part of Budapest society. Begin your tour on Andrássy Avenue, where at the turn of the 20th century, the Jewish population began to thrive. See the old shops, residences, and synagogues still nestled in its side streets, serving as a reminder of that time.

An examination of Jewish culture in the 20th century is clearly not complete without a look at the horrific oppression suffered at the hands of the Nazi regime. Take a look at portions of the walls once used to barricade the neighborhood, and listen as your guide tells tragic stories of deportation and loss.

Complete your tour on a note of hope, however, as you explore how the Jewish community of present-day Budapest once again prospers. Admire one of the world's largest synagogues as well as a variety of kosher shops that contribute to Hungary's diverse and vibrant culture.
